  • Heat oven to 400°F. Place coating mix in pie plate or shallow dish. Dip chicken in coating mix, turning to evenly coat both sides of each piece. Place in single layer on baking sheet. Sprinkle with any remaining coating mix. Discard bag and marinade.
  • Bake 40 to 45 min. or until chicken is done (165°F).

    I made this last night for my family and they loved it! My son said that ws the best chicken he has had. I changed it up a little. I used bacon ranch instead of lite ranch.

    This works well with thin boneless porkchops also.

    Absolutely fantastic! I used boneless, skinless chicken breast because that' what they had on sale at the store. My entire family loved it! It makes good leftovers, too. I'll have to check the Shake N Bake nutrition information, because it was just too good. I'll definitely do this again!
